Famous quotes containing the words dorothy parker and/or parker:

    He [Robert Benchley] and I had an office so tiny that an inch smaller and it would have been adultery.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    Out in Hollywood, where the streets are paved with Goldwyn, the word “sophisticate” means, very simply, “obscene.” A sophisticated story is a dirty story. Some of that meaning was wafted eastward and got itself mixed up into the present definition. So that a “sophisticate” means: one who dwells in a tower made of a DuPont substitute for ivory and holds a glass of flat champagne in one hand and an album of dirty post cards in the other.
    —Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)
